The Arts in Education: Every Child's Right.

Griffin Center for Inspired Instruction® is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit education service organization dedicated to the improvement of learning options for all students, grades Pre-K through 12. Our mission is to engage in strategic collaborations with public agencies, universities, school districts and non-profit organizations to shift paradigms in public instruction through the development and advancement of innovative research-based ideas, processes and programs.

The Center’s principal areas of interest include student access to quality arts education experiences, the learning of creative and critical thinking strategies through integrated instruction, and early language acquisition and literacy development, particularly for disadvantaged student populations.

Our experienced team of consultants, trainers and researchers will custom-tailor our education services to provide 360-degree support for our collaborators. Read more about each type of service in the links above.

Grif-fin: A mythical creature of the imagination, half eagle and half lion, the Griffin symbolizes the integration of intelligence and courage. The Griffin's ancient role was to guard sacred treasures, including human knowledge.
